Sue Dulmage brings with her over 22 years of dedicated service in the hospitality procurement industry. Her professional career began with Gerry Brown & Associates, followed by an immediate transition to The Cardy Group. Her responsibilities included managing all aspects of the purchasing process, including sourcing, design development and coordination, budgeting, tendering, tracking and installation. She then moved to Westmont Hospitality Group, where she was responsible for tendering, analyzing, negotiating and launching National Agreements for M&E (Maintenance and Engineering), A&G (Administrative and General) and Logistics. In addition, she worked with the Vice President of Purchasing to meet financial targets for FF&E, Operations and Administrative areas of the Organization.
In 2003, Sue moved to Four Seasons Hotels & Resorts, where she held several positions within the procurement department, from Purchasing Manager of china and linens to Director of Hotel Relationship Management and ultimately, Director of Design Coordination. As Director of Hotel Relationship Management, she managed a team that supported the procurement needs of the Owners and the Operations team for properties in Canada, the United States and Asia. In 2010, Sue's experience with Owners, the Hotel teams, Interior Designers, and vendors provided a natural transition to Director of Design Coordination, where Sue and her team worked closely with the interior designers on all renovation and new development projects to ensure that the exclusive standards of Four Seasons were being met.
Prior to founding SDA, Sue worked on numerous renovations and new development projects in Canada, Hawaii and the continental US. Sue has also worked with some of the most reputable interior designers in the hospitality industry, including Anderson Miller, BAMO, Brayton + Hughes, Cheryl Rowley Design, EDG, Moncur Design Associates, Paul Duesing Partners, Pierre Yves Rochon and Yabu Pushelberg.
Sue holds a Bachelor of Commerce Degree in Hospitality and Tourism Management from Ryerson University and is a member of NEWH.
